Adam X's sound is best described as hard, EBM and industrial inspired dance-floor techno & electro. Adam X penetrates, educates and infuses his audience with a real energy, often drawing from dark & sexual themes, through the mastery of the electronic music medium he has gained from a prolific career.

Adam got started in NYC in the early '90s -an era of a burgeoning grass-roots music and club culture, which he himself had contributed to. Following teenage years of aerosol art, underground club music & electronic creativity in the late 80s, Adam X & his brother Frankie Bones found their way to techno, a new and emerging genre. Around this time Adam X and his brother also hosted a series of underground warehouse events, the most famous of which are the legendary 'Storm Raves,' which featured up and coming artists such as Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin, Damon Wild and Lenny Dee. It is often said that a techno event in the US cannot be considered 'official' without the presence of one of these two people in its line-up.

In his career, Adam X has performed alongside artists such as Aphex Twin, Surgeon & Joey Beltram, and lately, the likes of Terence Fixmer/Douglas Mccarthy and Andrew Weatherall.
